NOTMAR/NOTAM Launch Hazard Area map visualization of Starlink v1.0-L9 mission from LC-39A for Jun 25 20:39 UTC, alternatively Jun 26 20:18 UTC.

Compare to previous Starlink launches there is slightly moved booster landing position for B1051.5 also with slightly longer Hazard Area B (orange one).
There is also an additional area of unclear purpose (green), similarly as it was during Starlink mission in April.

Stage2 deorbit during second orbit with debris reentry to the area across Indian Ocean this time, similar as first four Starlink launches where also was a circular deploying orbit.

For Hazard Areas of any recent missions you can always check this link. http://bit.do/LHA11. For older missions links enclosed in the map legend.

CelesTrak has SupTLEs for tomorrow’s 10th #Starlink launch  with BlackSky Global 5 & 6 from Cape Canaveral at 2039 UTC (https://celestrak.com/NORAD/elements/supplemental/). Deployment of the 57 Starlinks is set for 2020-06-25 22:12:36.790 UTC.

That's interesting in a couple different ways

In case somebody haven't noticed: deployment orbit: 388 x 401 km. Significantly higher than all other v1.0 deployments.

Could this simply be that the rideshare customer wanted a higher orbit for their sats and Starlink could handle that orbit?

57 seems like odd. Has there been any previous confirmation of the number? All I can find are secondary sources that mention 58.
Which booster has the most soot? SpaceX booster launch history! (discussion)

Yes, 57 was also mentioned by T.S. Kelso, an astronomer who runs CelesTrak and receives Starlink satellite trajectory data from SpaceX before each Starlink launch, it was posted upthread by gongora.

Any specific reason given for the delay? Just more rocket work needed?

I'm guessing they wanted to get the next flight's SF out of the way.

Y'all asked for it so here you go! B1051.5 at LC 39-A on the left and the recently static fired booster for GPS III on LC-40 to the far right. You can also see the MLP for OmegA, VAB and LC-41 where an Atlas will launch Perseverance in July. Busy Cape Range!

Edit to add:

There's quite a lot going on at the Cape right now! Using @julia_bergeron's photo, I marked each point of interest in this shot.

Two Falcon 9s, One Atlas V going to Mars, parts of SLS, and OmegA! These next few months are going to be a lot of fun to watch.

The launch timeline is up at spacex.com/launches.  Two second stage burns, first BlackSky sat deployment just over an hour into flight, Starlinks deploy just over an hour and a half into flight.

Crossing fingers this means we may get fairing catch/scoop attempt footage live.

On leaving the "rods" at such a high orbit...

I wonder (speculation hat on)
Have SpX added some sort of thruster package (using a StarLink sat buss) to each one with the intent they will deorbit themselves???
(speculation hat off)

I mean... the later planned launches to higher orbits almost mean they have to have something planned...

And I think, tethering the rods to the S2 to drag the whole mess down is risking punching a hole in the tank...

I will be watching... Very curious ???

Launch hazard area and airspace closure area. These are the latest on the 45th website, obviously haven’t been updated for the latest day slip to the launch date.
